Industry Database

Damen Green Solutions' mobile ballast water treatment system has demonstrated its capability to help ships meet the International Maritime Organisation's D2 standard which came into force on 8 September.

Damen has been offering the InvaSave solution for more than five years, launching the InvaSave 300 in 2017 and improving its functionality in preparation for this latest legislation. Following successful demonstrations in Lisbon in May this year, the InvaSave crew teamed up with local service provider Tradebe to receive ballast water from a tanker in Gijon in northern Spain, providing final confirmation that the technology is ready and able to meet the new legislation.

“InvaSave provides a mobile and flexible solution to this requirement,” said Damen Green’s Matthijs Schuiten, “meeting market demand without causing operational delays. If a vessel is unable to discharge its ballast water, the loss of income through downtime, compounded by additional port costs, has a huge impact on the vessel owner’s bottom line. The efficiency of InvaSave’s model also potentially saves owners months of downtime waiting for a retrofit.”

The InvaSave 300 IMO-certified system is an external ballast water treatment unit that uses mechanical filtration and ultraviolet radiation to remove and eradicate invasive organisms from ballast water as it is discharged from inbound vessels. InvaSave can also provide ballast water of the same quality to outbound vessels.

The entire system comes in a single, 40ft container and is fully mobile and ideal for placing on a barge, workboat or trailer.
